Tip of The Week- Overview of Shock
Shock in general is defined as a critical condition brought on by a sudden drop in blood flow through the body. There is failure of the circulatory system to maintain adequate blood flow. This sharply curtails the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to vital organs. It also compromises the kidney and so curtails the removal of wastes from the body.
Shock can be due to a number of different mechanisms including not enough blood volume (hypovolemic shock), infection at a systemic level (septic shock), and not enough output of blood by the heart (cardiogenic shock).
To have a better understanding on the different kinds of shock, follow the links below.
